A cartoon with lots of music and action as well as ethnic stereotypes the 1930s way: "An unremarkable wild west cartoon is improved by the comedy of the unexpected. Numerous seemingly fat, cloaked Indians are unwrapped to reveal beautiful girls; when the cavalry leader uncloaks the Chief, he's revealed as a Jewish caricature. The Jewish Indian was a standard vaudeville gag at the time, in part the result of Fanny Brice's hit song on the theme (I'm an Indian)." (http://www.cartoonresearch.com/tomjerry/1932.html)

lots of gags
Lots of gags, some are even amusing, but no real structure to it as we find in later better cartoons.
Tom and Jerry seem to be almost incidental characters in their own cartoon.
